Edinburgh is known for historic sites, museums, sightseeing, nature, and nightlife.

For ratings, photos, reviews, and other tourist information, use the Edinburgh travel planner.

Cardiff to Edinburgh is an approximately 4.5-hour flight. You can also take a train; or drive. Plan for a bit cooler nights when traveling from Cardiff in November since evenings lows in Edinburgh dip to 3°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Fri) to allow time to fly back home.
